Really lyrical song. The softer and smoother it’s played, the better, country style in 2nd position works well for it, there are a lot of bends on 3. Sometimes I use wah-wah tremolo effect, usually to finish the line on the last note. A lot of vibrato here, throat and tongue. Also not to mention there are a lot of lyrics in this song, that always differentiate, adequate way is to ignore it and play the melody without unnecessary variations. But of course you can variate the lines in your own way to develop the song, where you feel it’s right 🙂

Tabs and the original song are below the video.
